Sue and I were driving to dinner after a long day running our Regional NRA Championship match. We were stopped at a light, when suddenly our vehicle was rear ended. We were uninjured and the damage to our vehicle was minor. The other vehicle sustained major front end damage with both front airbags deploying. We believe our rear hitch “Raven” from Gunsite, absorbed the majority of the collision, protecting us and our vehicle and caused significant damage to the other vehicle. The driver was taken to the “ER”, but has been released. The “Raven” suffered some minor scratches and has a slightly bent wing, but is otherwise undamaged.
Bottom-line: Never underestimate the impact of training at Gunsite.
Pictures attached. You can make out the “Raven” impression on the damaged hood, just above and to the left of the “Chevy” emblem.
